PIRTEK Offers Two Types of Franchise Options
Tier 1 - The estimated initial investment for a Tier 1 franchise starts at around $347K. Factors like the size and location of your business will determine exactly how much you’ll need to spend. Our Tier 1 hydraulic franchises are comprehensive businesses that include a retail store complete with staff of 5-7, along with at least 3 vehicles to offer service on-the-go.
Tier 2 - The estimated initial investment for a Tier 2 franchise starts at around $162K. These franchisees should plan on expanding into a Tier 1 franchise within a few years.
